Abu Dhabi: Ian Bell calls his captain’s performance as a masterclass against Pakistan. He states Cook as an inspiration for himself during his own struggles.
It is interesting to see how Cook started this year and where he stands now. The English captain is now the leading run scorer in the world in 2015. At the start of this year he was waiting for his moment to end his two year drought without a test hundred.
The middle order batsman bell said that he is watching Cook’s innings pretty keenly. Cook was remarkable in his approach. He was solid in his defense. He executed his sweeps perfectly.
He bats left handed so there is always a fear inside about the patches created outside the off stump for left handers but not for Cook. He executed his each shot with perfection and that showed his mental strength to inspire all his team members.
Bell further added that his form has put all his murky performances under the carpet. This is what good days do when they come.
Cook just hit this third double ton and becomes the highest runs scorer for England in the last 30 years against Pakistan.
